and that is the story of scout brown and that journey has now led him to washington, d.c. today, bill. bill: as you probably know and we just pointed out, brown threw the victory for health care into disarray. yesterday nancy pelosi talked with democrats about the options on the table. no clear course of action has emerged but we understand the house passing the senate's version of the bill is not an option, but three other options, three other courses of action are still being considered: one, passing a pared-down health care bill that would then have to pass the senate, number two, passing a bill with a few changes that house members are pursue, then merge thank with the senate bill. the third option is do nothing. of course, this thing in washington, washington is -- nothing is guaranteed. stay tuned on that. martha: back to the fox news alert on unemployment today, the labor department says thursday, the numbers always come out every thursday, initial claims for unemployment rose by 36,000 last week, and that reaches 482,000 social security that moving average. wall street economists did not ex
in washington during his state of the union address. listen here. >> washington may think that saying anything about the other side, no matter how false, no matter how malicious, is just part of the game. but it's precisely such politics that has stopped either party from helping the american people. worse yet, worse yet, it's stalling -- forming further division among citizens, further distrust in our government. bill: house republican leaders are already saying they're skeptical. molly henneberg is live at the capitol with more. it's cold. >> reporter: it's cold, bill, there are 178 house republicans, and most of them will be here today in baltimore for the annual house gop retreat. congressman mike pence, who is chair of the house republican conference, is holding a bhng reporters this hour to give everybody the lay of the land, but the main event today as you've been talking about is the president will be speaking to house republicans today, and congressman pence says he hopes it's just not another speech, rather an exchange of ideas that maybe will encourage the president to, quote, consi
and brian wilson is covering all that from washington. brian, how has the tsa been responding ever since this christmas day incident? >> patti ann, since the christmas day incident of attempting to blow up a plane from amsterdam to detroit the tsa has ramped up procedures and is issuing new guidelines for airlines that schedule flights into the u.s. from international destinations. how is it paying off? here are the statistics immediately following christmas, 28 passengers were arrested after investigations of suspicious behavior or fraudulent travel documents, we know that 12 firearms were found at checkpoints around the country, they found four artfully concealed prohibited items at various checkpoints around the country, and here's sort of a telling statistic, 24 incidents that involved a checkpoint closure, a terminal evacuation, or a sterile area breach. that seems to be up a little bit. it could be because they've stepped up procedures, it could also be this has been a busy time of year for flying. patti ann: so what is it like for the flying public now? >> well, anyone who has flo

years, and that is that for far too long, people in this country felt like washington was about the special interests and not about them. that's why they're frustrated. martha: all right, so you hear robert gibbs there basically saying stay the course, from the white house. is that the right move? professor of advanced political studies at washington university, a fox news contributor, andrea tantara joins us as well a. conservative column nis out of foxnews.com, both are fox forum contributors as well. let's make a big contribution here as well. good morning, good to see you both. >> thank you martha. >> good to see you. martha: bob, you couldn't help by listen and watch the shows and get the message from the white house that you know what, this is what we're elected to do, the american people want these things from us in terms of health care reform. stay the course. health care reform needs to stay on course. >> well, it needs to stay on course. the problem of course is you can't get it passed. one thing that was a little misleading here is that obama promised to get health ca

threats and many of them we hear will come from the cia. jordan ganra is here out of washington, good morning to you. four specific points that bret baier and mike emanuel drug up -- dugel yesterday, they will disseminate informs on extremists on 48 hours, that's two days. why wouldn't they do that already? >> one is, they bring in a ton of information from all sorts of sources and all sorts of methods and they sort through it, and i think what they've been doing is they've been taking a few days or sometimes weeks to sort through the information to determine whether it's relevant or not before they kick it out to the rest of the intelligence community. i think now, they're going to have to sort through it more quickly and they're going to end up sending out a lot more information to the other members of the intelligence community. bill: so the cia is getting the information and they would go through it on their own is what you're saying, right? >> that's typically what happens, is they'll go through it and see if it's relevant or not, before they decide to kick it around the intellig

christmas day attack on a u.s.-bound jetliner. >>> in washington, a very pointed request on health care today that could create an awkward situation for the democrats. the congressional television service, c-span, has sent a letter to capitol hill leaders, asking for all important health care meetings to be open to coverage. that request comes as we hear reports that the final, final version of the health care bill may be crafted by top democrats behind closed doors, without public access or republican input. kelly wright is live from the white house with more. kelly, what specifically is c-span requesting in this letter to the president and to senate and house leaders? >> i'll get right to your point, i'm hold thank letter from c-span and they are basically challenging the president on what he talked about when he was then-senator barack obama campaigning. you'll recall he talked about a lot of transparency in terms of what would be taking place in congress, that it wouldn't be behind closed doors, and that's certainly what they're addressing here. they say president obama, senate and

how much say washington can have ultimately. what do you believe in your heart? does the president get too much credit when the economy is good and does the president get too much credit when the economy is bad? >> well, i think what happens is that we need, as a congress and as a country, to set the environment right for businesses to flourish. businesses hire more people when there is some certainty and they say opportunities ahead, but when there is so much uncertainty, the environment is difficult and it's harder for people to make that commitment. but it is small jobs, bill, that drives the economy. it always has been. 70 percent of the new jobs are created by small businesses. and that's why i encourage this sort of tax breaks and things we're talking about for small businesses. but we need to focus on jobs today, not adding to the debt tomorrow. and the vote today and the president says he wants the jobs bill, put the vote on the senate floor today is to raise the federal debt ceiling by another $1.9 trillion. that's an amount of spending that is irresponsible, it is unsustainab
